Fishing Report

Little Bay De Noc: The best walleye catches were for night anglers trolling stick baits or crawlers along the reefs in Kipling in 18 to 22 feet. Smallmouth bass anglers had a hard time finding them but did manage to catch some nice ones. Spotty catches were reported from the Second Reef south to the southern end of the Black Bottom with minnows or plastics in 18 to 25 feet. A few good perch catches were reported by the green buoy near the Day’s River and off Gladstone Beach with minnows in 16 to 28 feet.

Big Bay De Noc: Had a few smallmouth anglers fishing around Snake Island and over by Snail Shell Harbor. Best catches were in 15 to 35 feet with a minnow and slip bobber along the break. Some nice perch were caught in the mouth of Garden Bay, but the bite slowed.

Marquette: Had another slow week. Very few boats are going out. Rumor has it those fishing off the end of the breakwall in the Lower Harbor caught lake trout and the odd steelhead. Some boat anglers were going upstream in the Chocolay River.
